To install all versions of packettracer except 7.2.2, follow this guidelines: 1. Download the snapshot from this AUR. 2. Tar -zxf the packettracer.tar.gz snapshot (it creates the dir packettracer/ with the PKGBUILD on it). 3. Download the latest packettracer tarball from your Netacad account and copy it into the packettracer/ dir. 4. Create the package with the command makepkg (it creates a packettracer.pkg.tar.xz). 5. Install the package with either makepkg -i or sudo pacman -U packettracer.pkg.tar.xz.

Packettracer 7.2.2 are auto installable via run file, download it from netacad webpage and run it, you don't need this package.

Fixed checksum error

I got a checksum error:

==> Validating source files with md5sums...
PacketTracer531_Fedora.tar.gz ... FAILED
packettracer ... Passed
linguist ... Passed
==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!

I have downloaded packettracer and the PKG-build again, but the problem stays.

I have a problem with all versions of PT 5.3(1). But 5.2 works fine, but there is no possibility ExApp, which I need for now.

You can always revert to the previous version ( ).

If anyone else has issues with the current PKGBUILD, leave a comment and I'll revert the changes.

Anyway, when opening files. pkt and. pka PacketTracket has friezes, so it's impossible to work.

Try uninstalling packettracer, and manually removing any traces you still find of packettracer on your system (rm -r /opt/pt /usr/bin/packettracer) normally these files shouldn't exist anymore after you removed the package so if they do, i think we found the culprit of your problems :)
Afterwards you can reinstall this package.
